BYB Super Bright CREE T6 LED Adjustable Flashlight

It’s my privilege to report on many different flashlights – most of them being more high-end lights with a price tag of $50, $100 or more. Here I’m happy to report on a light, or to state it correctly, a light package that you can still purchase for only $16.99 at Amazon!

Included in the package:

-The light. A nice, hefty aluminum handheld light with a CREE XM-L T6 emitter;

-An Ultrafire 26650 6800mAh rechargeable cell;


-A charger for the battery;

-A sleeve to allow use of an 18650 cell


-A carrier that will allow the use of 3 AAA batteries

The light is unremarkable in operation. Uses the familiar forward “clicky” style switch with activation of high, medium, low, strobe and SOS. You can move through the modes by activating the light then lightly pressing the button. Or you can click the light on and off repeatedly to move through the modes. There is no mode memory.

An equivalent battery alone could cost $12-20. While the charger is definitely an inexpensive one, having it included is a nice bonus. And being able to operate the light off 3 common AAA batteries in a pinch is also nice.

What I enjoy about the light is the focusing head, allowing for the beam to be shaped anywhere from a pure flood to a pinpoint aspheric spot. You can literally see the etching of the LED chip when set for pure spot.

Definitely a package worth looking into, especially for the bargain price!

Love firearms and flashlights - and they go well together. I've been admiring and writing about quality flashlights for about 10 years...built my own integrating sphere....done a few mods. Proof positive that a 60 year old can still love toys!

    Looks like the myriad of cheap zoom lights from eBay or Chinese direct buy site. Not terrible, but durability is often pretty suspect. I have a Nitecore and a couple Convoy lights. Usually the premium paid for Streamlight and Surefire is for durability and real lumen ratings.

    Folks, I have no "dog in this hunt" and have no need or desire to defend this light, but this is a good light and a great value. I've had (literally) hundreds of lights pass through my hands and still have dozens in my possession and have seen the best and the worst. This one isn't the quality of a Surefire, Malkoff, Streamlight, HDS, etc......even Zebralight.. But it's pretty darn good. And quite frankly, it looks to be more substantial than the Four Sevens lights that have been mentioned. What do you get from Four Sevens? A much more customer friendly experience and a warranty/company that will stand behind their product. This BYB is a crap shoot - Amazon might stand behind it, though. All that said, for a decent package for bug out bag, truck light, tool box light, etc., this light wouldn't break the budget and you would be losing much if it did go bad. When I absolutely have to depend on a light - to be absolutely sure that it'll work - then I'll carry a Surefire or, better still, an HDS or custom McGizmo.
